During Microsoft Ignite, Microsoft announced new role-based certifications and Azure training courses to the learning community.  The MOC courses have been released as individual one-day courses that allow a learning partner to customize a delivery if they so choose or have been made available as packaged sets.  These courses contain links to exercises (each exercise tends to be less than 15 minutes in duration.)

To provide students with more extensive hands-on practice and to enable instructors with the ability to monitor students’ progress, Learn on Demand Systems has created the following Azure MOC labs + IT Pro Challenge bundles.

ADVANCED CHALLENGE – Based on a series of requirements built around an overall objective. It lets students figure out if they know how to perform administrative tasks, and helps them learn new ones by utilizing resource information. Each requirement must be completed successfully to move to the next. Duration ~ 45 minutes.

EXPERT CHALLENGE – Students will complete a large configuration task to showcase their mastery of a topic, which could span multiple products, technologies, and platforms. They will not receive task guidance. An automated score is given once complete. Duration ~ 60 minutes.
